Another Seminole gets paid.

NCAA Football: Mississippi at Florida State Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Through a good chunk of his time in Tallahassee, defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi was known as the strongest Seminole on the football team. Now it’s time to see just how he stacks up FINISH.

The Kanas City Chiefs tapped Nnadi (6’1, 317) in the 3rd round of the 2018 NFL Draft, making him the 75th overall player chosen. Nnadi is one of several elite prospects to have established the DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) pipeline to Florida State, as he made his way from Virginia Beach, Va. to Tallahassee, where he spearheaded the FSU defense (while also being one of the funnier players on the team). He’ll join fellow ’Nole Terrance Smith in Kansas City.

A pair of Seminoles have now been selected in the Draft, while many others remain on the board. Be sure to keep up on all the activity surrounding FSU players with our tracker, which we’ll update as news breaks.
